    HI guys, I now can say I got the bug for folders! I been trying my hands at lock backs, and came across a liner lock that I found cool looking and decided to try my luck at making my version of it.
    here it is! hope you guys like it.
    steel 1/8 01
    hex screws
    have no clue about the wood. :D
    Chicago screw for the pivot. ( sorry about Loctite smudge)

    I like the look, though I'm not sure how comfortable it would be to hold for any length of time. Perhaps you can expand on it with some scales that would improve on the feel for the next one.

    Oh boy, I’ve heard tell of the ‘Folding Knife Rabbit Hole,’ I think our Peter has fallen down it!

    I think this is a natural progression for some makers, and I can’t wait to see your other designs man, awesome job!

    Hi Myth, yeah there is a few things I am considering and presently working on to improve it. first a wheel Bering pivot, second thinning the elbow of the lock bar to make it more spring like.. for the scale was thinking of having the wood sit on top of the spine and see how that feels. for the most part the original one doesn't feel to bad.
